    Hey guys. My Phantom 4 arrived this morning and I found a little time to unbox it and provide my initial impressions of the device. You might be sick of unboxing videos already, so just skip this one if you are. I am a bit surprised that I dont actually hate the design of it. It definitely feels like it is built better than the P3. It is kind of hard to explain, but you would understand if you held it in your hands. Anyway. check out these 2 videos if you are interested in my initial thoughts. More videos and tests to come.

    Right above you.
    Anyone else think the locking mechanism on the case is made for someone with small fingers? Just an observation of mine.

    I 100% thought the same thing. My sausage fingers were struggling.

    Honestly though, the case is a nice touch. I can't say how long it will last if you use it for rigorous travel, but nice that that included something better than the Phantom 3 box.

    Indeed. Perfect for tossing in the back seat of the car for short road trips under an innocent looking beach towel. Already fits an iPad Mini, too!

    If I had to pinpoint the smell, I would say somewhere between a rich mahogany and those pine tree air fresheners for cars. Actually, just plastic.
